Suggestions for improvement

  • I can't improve it. It is that good. I know it hared to believe, but it is a great place to work. I am just sorry it has taken so long for me to find a place like this.

What I like about the company

I was after four short months where my knowledge and skills are better utilized.

What I dislike about the company

I can't think of anything I disapprove of. The company operates very well. I have no complaints. But again, I am still fairly new.

Company Culture

Ignore others it's fine

Support from management

Higher up ya are. The more buddy system works for ya.

Teamwork

Everyone about themselves.

Freedom to work independently

Ya. I guess ya do whatever ya want. By yourself. Don't do
Anything if ya can live with it
Lol. True. Can't go into detail

Internal Communication

Learn the system.
Read council minutes
Or ya won't know what they
Change to cover their tracks.

Gender Equality

Prolly. Just women don't
Like the smell of waste.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Everyone high risk
Since mayor put police and fire on our insurance. If
Ya old. It ok.
Insurance costs everyone.

Career Development

Put your time in.
Accept what it is.
No room to advance
Unless ya got friends
In high places.

Overall compensation for your work

Not very good
Numbers sound good
But do the math on insurance
Cost. Ya can make same
Most anywhere.

Office / Work Environment

Toxic environment.
No control over temps.
Even building can't get done.
Back to. Read the minutes.

Company Image

They do a lot for image.

Job Security

Depends on who ya are.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes. But not in trailer.
Building been under construction for almost year

Yes. Just stay inside
Certain areas. It be ok.

Suggestions for improvement

Do whatever ya want.

Insurance costs.
Buddy system
And time takes to get anything done.

Company Culture

Morale is definitely low due to management and the excessive amounts of overtime.

Support from management

Leadership does not listen to their employees. Communication is definitely lacking.

Teamwork

Night shift has great teamwork but other shifts are lacking.

Freedom to work independently

This is frowned on and looked upon as complaints.

Internal Communication

Communication with some of the command staff is welcomed but most do not welcome this exchange.

Gender Equality

It's the average. Yet men are favored more than the women.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Officers could support each other more.

Career Development

There is some career development but not much.

Overall compensation for your work

Benefits are awesome. You could ask for better.

Office / Work Environment

Working conditions could definitely be better. Senior officers should be more supportive but their not.

Environmental Friendliness

There is no social awareness.

Work-Life Balance

You don't have a life working there due to the excessive amounts of overtime.

Company Image

Their image could definitely be better.

Job Security

If you like excessive Overtime and never seeing your friends and family this is a secure job for you.

Handicapped Accessibility

The facility is very accessible.

Workplace Safety

IThe facility could definitely be better in that department with more two officers in every unit.

Challenging Work

Yes the work is challenging but the inmates are favored more than the officers and this shouldn't happen.

Inclusive / Diverse

There's no real diversity there, theyre just not forward thinking people.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Listen to your younger officers who have fresh ideas like 12 hrs shifts which would lessen the need for all the excessive amounts of overtime.

What I like about the company

The money and opportunity.

What I dislike about the company

The excessive amounts of overtime, lack of teamwork from other shifts.
